Thank you to everyone that donated to our Christmas, Crafts and Kids $.25 Gift Store. We had a great turn-out and heard lots of positive comments afterwards.  We will be taking donations of Christmas items from now until January 15th for next year's sale.

The After School Program could use some donations of glue sticks, colored pencils, art boxes and some more snacks.  The kids especially like animal crackers, chocolate pudding cups, applesauce cups and apple juice. 
Thank you.

Attention 5th Grade Parents!
The 1st Communion parent/student/pastor instructional classes will be February 9th and February 16th at 9 a.m. Save the dates!


Prayer Shawl Ministry

Now is a good time to be working on those shawls, whether you want to quilt, knit or crochet. We sent out a lot in October and could use some to replenish our stock and be ready for those in need of one. If you think of someone in a trying circumstance, then please come check one out and give that person a visit. They are available through the office during office hours. 
There is also a book of patterns and information of shawl size and tips in the office, plus lots of yarn in the clothing room that is free to use.
